  • 1298 Miller Avenue Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    This crosswalk (across Miller between Pomona and Wesley) lacks pedestrian crossing signs. It is the only crosswalk on Miller between Maple and Main Street that lacks the signs. Also, the crosswalk is on a hill, so the signs will make it more visible in both directions.

    Basketball court in need of repair... trip hazard possible and it's highly used...
  • 1225 Kensington Dr. Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    What is the law or zoning on having K&M Automobile using the their commercial property located on Jewitt Rd. as a junk yard that abuts to my property. There has to be some law that says this cannot happen in the City of Ann Arbor? I need to know when you go out to the place of business as I have complained before and asked my neighbors to complain and nothing is done. what about the rust, the leaking oil or any parts of the car that leak into the ground - this will effect my property values and is an eyesore and should not be allowed. I need proof you have been to the property and what are the restrictions for junk yards next to residential property in Ann Arbor. I have more pictures but all you have to do is go to the back of the company lot that abuts to 1225 Kensington dr., and Hutzel Heating & Cooling and see the junk cars. this is the only way you will see it is if you actually visit the property and talk to the owners of K&M Automotive
  • Pothole repair Acknowledged
    200-398 Depot Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor

    I posted this issue ~ one year ago when it was very minor.
    The herringbone brick pavement on the south side of depot approaching State is buckling. The affected area has more than tripled over the past few months.

    It will be such a terrible shame if the wonderful smooth brickwork becomes a hodgepodge of gaps and funky patches.

    PLEASE get over there and re-set the herringbone pattern before it gets worse.

    This started as fewer than a dozen bricks out of place because of an issue around the drain. Now the area of misplaced bricks is expanding and will CONTINUE to do so unless we repair it.

  • 1063 South University - Ann Arbor
    New large pothole in bike lane forces cyclists into street. This creates a dangerous traffic situation. Please repair.
  • Park maintenance Acknowledged
    910 Spring Street Ann Arbor Michigan - Ann Arbor
    The baseball diamond at Hunt Park needs some attention. See photo. #1: the chain link at the bottom center of the backstop needs to be pulled down and reattached. #2: the limbs that have grown up through the right side of the backstop should be removed. #3: the rock that is behind the right side of the backstop should be moved or removed. #4: there is a low spot running from home plate where water collects after each rain that should be filled in or raised.
  • N Seventh & Bath Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    Please install in-street crosswalk signage on N Seventh at Bath, to "calm" speeders and yield for pedestrians & bikes to safely cross.
    Thanks a million for the other crosswalk designation & signage recently installed on Seventh - it helps a lot. Good job.
  • 1035 Daniel Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor

    A sign appeared in the last day or two on both the women's and men's restroom doors at the Hunt Park shelter that reads "Due to Recent vandalism the restrooms will be unavailable for use." I'm requesting that the restrooms be fixed and made available for use.

    I don't think all users of Hunt Park should be punished for vandalism by unknown people who may or may not live in the neighborhood. There are drinking fountains in the rest rooms that should be available to kids and adults playing soccer, tennis, or basketball in the park, particularly in the heat of August. In the heat of summer this is a health and safety issue.

    The drinking fountain on the outside of the shelter has been covered over with a black trash bag for several weeks, so there is no drinking water available anywhere at Hunt Park now. Also within the last day or two a sign appeared over the outside drinking fountain that reads "Due To sand blocking the drain the drinker will be unavailable for use." Can't the sand be removed and the drinking fountain be put back into use? Can't a different drain cover that is less likely to allow sand and dirt to block the drain be installed?

    If the vandalism occurs at night, perhaps fixing the two lights on the outside of the shelter could help reduce the problem. The lights haven't been working all season. They have been reported elsewhere on See Click Fix, but no action or a reply has occurred.

  • Sidewalk issue Acknowledged
    459 S 7th St Ann Arbor, MI 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    The builder of a new house at 822 W. Jefferson (corner of Jefferson and Seventh) badly damaged the sidewalk with heavy equipment during construction last year. They paved most of the driveway already without redoing the sidewalk. Please make them fix the sidewalk and don't make us pay for it.
  • 2219 Page Ave Ann Arbor, MI 48104, USA - Ann Arbor
    The vegetation on this corner (NE) of Page and Jewett has been overgrown for a long time. I have had many close encounters at this intersection moving South on Page but the other day I was walking with my 2 year old child and a man did not see us because of the vegetation. We were inches away from being run over. I know the city doesn't want that lawsuit - those bushes have to go.

    111 S 4th Ave Ann Arbor, MI 48104, USA - Ann Arbor
    Someone in Haymaker's kitchen keeps emptying the grease from their fryer into the alley storm drain on Monday mornings. It has happened three weeks a row! It stinks and is very gross. There is a grease receptacle right the by their kitchen door but for some reason it keeps being put in the alley drain.
    I live right next to this drain and it is very offensive. Please help!
  • Sidewalk issue Acknowledged
    300 N 1st Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    There is no sidewalk on the west side of 1st between Miller and Kingsley, and the sidewalk on the east side has been closed for construction. This forces pedestrians into the street, which is not safe here because of the high speeds and limited visibility. Please provide some place for people to walk safely on this block.
